UK-based MRO provider, Aerocare Aviation Services Ltd, has completed a comprehensive refurbishment of an Embraer Legacy 600 for air charter business, AirX Group.
The project included a luxury internal refit and the painting of a striking golden livery.
AirX chose Aerocare after being commissioned by the aircraft owner to replicate the custom gold livery of their existing Boeing Business Jet (BBJ), even down to the specific paint type. Aerocare also managed the removal and re-installation of the new interior, which was created by interiors specialist AeroVisto to match the look and feel of the BBJ at its facility in Switzerland.
Houssam Hazzoury, group chief executive officer at AirX, said: “Our partnership with Aerocare on this project has been a journey of shared values. We have witnessed first-hand their commitment to excellence, mirroring our own, as we collaboratively redefined the boundaries of aircraft design and aesthetic appeal.
“This project is a testament to what can be achieved when industry partners work together to envision something compelling from an owner’s brief.”
Aerocare worked from photos of the existing BBJ design to create a rendering of the complex golden livery for use on the smaller jet. To match the specific Mankiewicz paint of the original, the team liaised with Embraer to gain specialist approval for the required non-standard paint system.
Carsten Matthiesen, chief executive at AeroVisto, said: “The aim of this project was to create a sense of luxury both inside and out, something the collaborative effort between all parties was able to truly deliver.
“It has also provided a good opportunity to build a relationship with Aerocare and we look forward to working together on similarly creative solutions in the future.”
